We have seen an explosion in pet ownership for key demographics groups. Millennials, often delaying marriage and families with children, have focused instead on their own “children” of the canine and feline variety. As people lavish attention and money on their pets, Freshpet has been on a decent run for much of 2018.

This comes despite the Q2 August earnings where they missed estimates. At that time, net sales increased 23.0% to $47.6 million, compared to $38.7 million for the second quarter of 2017. The Company’s core fresh refrigerated product offering grew 24.2% as compared to the same period in the prior year. Sales were up, but their net loss increased to $3.5 million vs a net loss of $2.7 million the prior year.

Despite the loss, the chart shows a company that has powered up @100% in 2018.
